Why does a pesticide work well one time and not so well the next when everything seems the same? Variable weather could play a role. Or the pest could be less susceptible to the active ingredient. At other times, an inconsistent pesticide performance seems inexplicable.
An integrated pest management (IPM) system, or an integrated crop management (ICM) system can never be a prescriptive, ‘off the shelf’ package. A grower must look at all the options available to him or her and make an informed decision as to which measures to take. Because each farmer’s situation is different, the types of IPM measures they implement may vary between regions and often even from farm to farm.

African cassava mosaic disease (ACMD) is caused by a virus and, as its name implies, appears to be confined to Africa. A similar disease caused by a closely related virus occurs in India, but the virus which causes the disease known as cassava common mosaic disease, found in South America, belongs to a different group. It follows, therefore, that the original cassava introductions into Africa were free of the disease and were invaded by a virus present in some other host or hosts whose identity has yet to be established.
